When people think of workers’ compensation benefits, they typically imagine a case in which a worker is injured in an accident or sustains a sudden injury as a result of a work task. Workers’ compensation benefits are also available, however, for people who have aggravated a pre-existing injury or medical condition. If you have suffered a workplace injury and it provoked a pre-existing injury, or pre-existing conditions, you need the help of a Spartanburg County workers’ compensation attorney.

Your employer or a co-worker may have told you that you are not eligible for benefits if you had a previous injury to your knee, back, shoulder, wrist or elbow that has been aggravated due to the performance of your work duties. You may have been told that an aggravation of your asthma or other medical condition is not covered. This simply is not true. You are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits for any work-related injury, even if the injury is an aggravation of a previous injury or medical condition.
